YES! If your children learn Turkish well, this will help them learn the language of the country you live in. Because languages feed off each other.
If you do not speak Turkish at home, your child’s Turkish will not improve or even regress over time.
The unused language stays in the shadow of the dominant language of education spoken in your environment and either changes or disappears over time.
If you do not speak Turkish at home, your children will not be able to speak with their relatives, grandparents, and will lose their language and cultural heritage in the next two or three generations.
All the researches show that the use in the home and FAMILY support are very important in language preservation.
